Nintendo Online paid service starts next week, Nintendo Direct tomorrow

Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Nintendo previously revealed that their online service would be launching in the "second half of September" and would cost significantly cheaper than Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus. Memberships for Nintendo Switch Online begin on September 18, 2018, and users will be able to test out the service with a 7-day free trial via the Nintendo eShop.

The much anticipated online gaming service for the popular Nintendo Switch has a start date: September 18. When it arrives next week, you'll need to sign up in order to play the likes of Splatoon 2, Arms, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Tennis Aces online, but Nintendo notes that other games may not require a subscription. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda.

Forget the stock. Tesla's bonds are imploding
They have fallen 29 percent from their August 7 intraday high of $387.46 when Musk tweeted about taking the company private . The only forecast Tesla had given previously for the third quarter was that it would produce 50,000 to 55,000 Model 3s.

Nintendo's also teasing "20 NES games with added online play for the first time ever" as soon as the service debuts, but so far hasn't indicated which titles we'll be getting first. Native voice chat was incorporated into the port of Fortnite, so we know it's at least possible with the Switch. If you somehow manage to lose your Switch or it gets damaged, you can recover your cloud saves and any purchased digital content without too much hassle, along with your Nintendo Switch Online account.

There are two pricing plans: individual and family memberships.
